I only needed 20 cents . . .

And I got a quarter and some pennies.  My mother in law, Momma T, was in town and came to spend some time with Haris, so I could go have some time for myself to write and do whatever.

Peek-A-Boo

The all time favorite game that every adult knows to play and that every baby loves.  Haris loves this game, she even likes to hold the cover up over her face and hide.  It’s quite cute and lots of fun…but actually I learned something.

Would like, Want, & Nesting . . .

I thought I lost something in my persona this past Friday.  A few times throughout the day I would hear myself, “oh I would like to _____ or that would be nice to ______.”  After saying/thinking these phrases a couple of times, I thought oh my gosh, where’s my will, drive, and initiative?  Where’s my go get it attitude?  What’s happening to me?

I (think) it’s dead . . .

It, is Amelia, my bougainvillea plant (pictured below).  We decorated our dark wooden balcony back in June with chairs, pillows, lights, a bright orange bench and small, bright orange table/stool, and a hummingbird feeder, we were both excited, and all that was missing were some plants.

Stop . . . or . . . go

When you think about your dreams or goals, what obstacles do you see?  At what point do you think you’ll be stopped?

Victim or Warrior

So if you’ve never been pregnant (and you happen to be me) the only concerns you may have when becoming pregnant are:  morning sickness, stretch marks, that you shouldn’t ride a bike or surf or other fun activities like that, weight gain, and the fact that at some point the baby has to exit through there.  I didn’t “know” there were other concerns.  There’s actually a lot that can happen to you.  And the internet and friend/foe pregnancy books depending on interpretation/application of the information can be to your mental benefit or detriment.  Lol!

But oh buddy, something happened to my lower left back . . . and with perfect timing . . . before the plane ride back to California.

Big Things in the Dark & Little Big Stuff

We went to Red Rock Canyon a couple of weeks ago, and had an amazing time!  It was absolutely beautifully breathtaking.  We hiked and played on the Red Rock, and breathed in the beauty and fresh air.  And my good friend and actress, Hayley, gave me a shoe rack yesterday.  That’s not a typo, that was the next sentence.

Waiting…

There’s a gap between where I am and where I want to be.  I think there’s a gap for most people…in their relationships, fitness goals, education, career, etc.  For a week or so, I was actually feeling ho hum, blah, lack luster, ugh, ya know?  And I couldn’t figure out what was wrong, or off.  Was it something I was or wasn’t doing?  It was both.

Mountain Climbers

“Climbing mount everest is not a straight up the mountain climb.”

– Woman Mountain Climber & Speaker (2011 Chick-Fil-A Leadercast Conference)

I wish I remembered her name.  This was news to me.  I always thought climbing Mount Everest was up, up, and up.  It’s not.  It’s up, then down, then up, then down, then further up, and then all the way back down, and continue this pattern until the top…like what?!  Why?!

Your body has to get use to the changes and the pressure.
